Floral Troll

This is as much in the Whimsical category as Flora. Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens has a summer exhibition, “The Secret Life of Trolls.” Each of the trolls are different, and several are made of living and dried plants. The troll in the photograph has:

Hair - Variagated Spider plant
Body - Sedge - “Amazon mist”
Face - Staghorn fern
Nose - dried pod
Horns - dried Baobab pods
Eyebrows - Palm fiber
Teeth - Dired Agave leaves.

It’s 8’ tall and the centerpiece in the Palm Court of the Conservatory.
